* ''PhantasyStar IV'' allows the [=PCs=] to combine their attacks. The immensely powerful [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Destruction]] combination attack requires simultaneous action all four mandatory party members: three combine their most explosive attacks, and the fourth puts up a shield so the party doesn't get nuked.

Added DiffLines:

* The Elemental Commixture feat in ''{{Pathfinder}}'' allows two casters to cast offensive elemental spells of different elements together to create new effects depending on the combination, as well as making it much harder for enemy casters to counterspell them.

** The Genki Dama [=/=] Spirit Bomb, which is powered by living things lending their energy to a good heart, is the former TropeNamer. This evolves throughout the series. The first time it's used, it's just the planet's power itself. The second time, it draws on the power of other planets and moons nearby. The third time, everybody on Earth sent power, only to be outdone by the final time, where ''[[GondorCallsForAid everybody Goku had met across the universe]]'' helped. It should be noted that despite all the trouble involved in using it, until the very end of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' the Spirit Bomb [[TheWorfBarrage never actually works]] in the main series. [[note]] In the movies it has a much better track record, killing Dr. Wheelo, Turles, and Lord Slug, and a variation is used to destroy Super Android 13 [[note]]. Later on, (Future) Trunks uses it to kill (the physical form of) Merged Zamasu in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.
** In the ''Budokai'' games, Cell is able to use a green version of the Spirit Bomb, despite being a villain. Some believe that Cell was able to use it because he was pure of heart, but pure ''evil'' instead of good. Based on a throwaway line he says while charging it, other fans jokingly theorize that Cell uses a different energy source called "Stupid Energy".

* In the [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate Galactus]] mini-series, [[spoiler: Jean Grey and Professor X, combining their power with an enhanced version of Cerebro, link every human on the planet to beam thoughts of living at Galactus until it got scared off. Well, vaporizing 30% of it by ''shooting a goddamn Big Bang at it'' helped too.]]

A common subtext to the trope is that the worst villains are inevitably weaker because they don't have friends to help them (see ThePowerOfFriendship). It's also a handy way of showing that the hero is very strong without nullifying the importance of the other cast members. Often combined with GondorCallsForAid, when the main group needs more energy than they themselves can generate. May be fueled by {{Innocent Bystander}}s. May include the PowerOfTrust and/or ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve. See also ICantDoThisByMyself.

Not to be confused with CombinationAttack or CombiningMecha or AllYourPowersCombined. This is just about collective energy which even the most faceless and generic {{Muggle}} can contribute to.
